a truck drives up a hill with a 15 degree incline. if the truck has a constant speed of 22 m/s, what are the horizontal and vertical components of the trucks velocity?

• Physics -

horizontal velocity = 22sin(15)

vertical velocity = 22cos(15)

• Physics -

thank you so so so so much !

Kayla: MrPhysics erred, and got the forces reversed.
Horizontal is the cosine function
Vertical is the sine function.
